Elise and Dave begin their quasi real-time coverage of Hulu's much anticipated adaptation of Stephen King's 11.22.63 with an in-depth look at the show's debut episode. There's a lot to discuss here - from the relative ontological fixity of "major" and "minor" historical events (why would "time" care? wouldn't any change be as important or as unimportant as any other change?) to the long-range historical impact of the Vietnam War. Along the way, we struggle to pin down the enduring appeal of old-timey diners, Elise takes our lives in her hands by calling out the CIA, and both hosts agree that, if nothing else, old Al's pantry wormhole showed up just in time to whisk James Franco out from under that death mask goatee.
We'll be here every week for the duration of the 8-part series, and you're on our permanent invitee list - no de Mohrenschildt name-drop required!
